Bubbles (チャコ,Chako?) is a peppyhippovillager in the Animal Crossing series. She has appeared in the GCN games and more recently in New Leaf. Bubbles's name may come from hippos' behavior of blowing bubbles, her bubbly personality, or Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls. Notably, her house contains a Tom Nook photo, which is a rare item. Her initial phrase could be a reference to both her species and to people who "have done things before they were cool". She has the fashion hobby.
Bubbles is a tan-orange hippo with small black circles for eyes and flaring nostrils. Her hands and feet are a tan color. She initially wears a Crossing Shirt, which is green and the same shade of orange as her skin. The inside of her ears and mouth is pink. Her orange skin may look a little brown.
Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.
Peppy villagers appear to be in a good mood often and are easy to become friends with. As a peppy villager, Bubbles will have the tendency to over-react in conversations about trivial subjects, and will usually be over-excited to see the player or other villagers. This villager, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. Peppy villagers dream of becoming famous in the future and read Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine read by snooty, normal, and other peppy villagers in the Animal Crossing Series. Peppy villagers will also have a very short attention span, which means they soon forget some arguments or tasks given to the player which weren't completed. Bubbles may easily get upset in conversation when the wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly lazy, normal, jock, sisterly and other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ to hers. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.
In New Leaf, Bubbles' house appears to have lots of sports items in it. This may be due to the fact that on April Fool's Day, she states her lifetime dream is to become a volleyball player, which could also explain the volleyball net in the middle of her house. Her CD player plays K.K. Stroll.
Bubbles is incredibly enthusiastic, but it's a bit of a problem in social situations. She tends to get right up in people's faces when she talks to them... which wouldn't be a problem if her nostrils weren't so enormous.
